What a great place to grow up

I remember… playing wiffle ball on hot August nights and quenching our thirst with a gallon of root beer from Dog n Suds, going to Poor Jims for a super steak, salad and baked potato, riding bikes to Valle Vista and buying soda and candy, playing with dirt clods around the homes being built in Cambridge Heights edition, playing baseball for Farmers Trust of the Lee’s Summit Baseball association, winning the Blue Darter award in 1976, cruising 3rd street with my buddies, working at Browning Brothers Men’s Clothes shop along side my Lee’s Summit mentors- Richard Burry and Elwood Lentz( the store was next to TG+Y at Summit Shopping center)
I loved Lee’s Summit so much that after Medical School I moved back and joined my fathers Lee’s Summit Clinic. Herbert A Dempsey worked there for 40 years and I have been there for 26 years and counting. My children are making memories in Lee’s Summit just like I did back in the day.
